On Texas Elective Bible Classes-Schools Don't Have to Offer Them, AG Says

IF less than 15 students sign up. And it seems that, at least in Tarrant county, there's not that much interest.

But even if there's no class, the Texas lege said that the Bible as literature must be taught in Texas schools.

In 2007, the Legislature approved such a course, stating that the material must be presented in a neutral manner without proselytizing. Lawmakers also added the subject to the state's required enrichment curriculum, which also includes physical education, economics and fine arts.

To meet the requirement, districts will have to provide biblical literature instruction in an existing course, according to the opinion.

Here's the problem and I sure don't envy being a teacher in this mess. There aren't any standards for how to teach the *cultural* parts of the Bible without veering into prosletyzing. Seems to me that will just engender another lawsuit, like the one in Ector County.
